Some people may find it odd that as a thirty-nine year old one of my favorite authors is still Dr. Seuss. The main reason that his works continue to influence me is that he entertains, educates and inspires. Many authors can only pull off one of those effectively. However with made up words and rhyming schemes, he does all three consistently.
My favorite book by Dr. Seuss is “The Lorax”. I have read it to my children so many times that I basically have it memorized. The message of environmental responsibility is delivered in a simple yet powerful way. “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.” This simple message applies to so many things. Since my blog is aimed toward self-improvement that is where I’ll focus.
It does not matter what challenges you face, you must own it first. People can help you and they will but there help is meaningless until you act. A better you is not born out of indifference. A better you is born out of passion, love and desire! The fitter you is not the product of idleness and excuses. Only through your focused effort can a fitter you arise. Unless you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not!
